A week ago I tried to make Boston Cream Cupcakes for the very first time. Now for those of you who don’t know what a Boston Cream Cupcake is, let me explain. They are vanilla sponge cupcakes filled with homemade vanilla custard, which are then smothered in rich chocolate icing. Sound good? You’re nodding yes right now, aren’t you?
Yesterday a bunch of our friends who hadn’t yet met Miss Nina James came to the house to see her. It was so nice hanging out with everyone and Nina even managed to stay awake for about 40% of the visit, she just sort of quietly stared at each person who held her, she was probably wondering how the hell so many giant faces could fit in one room at the same time.
Here are some of the flipping delicious looking things that I have pinned lately and drooled over. I’m so happy to have my sweet teeth back, whilst I was pregnant I craved salty things more that sweet, which is really not like me, but I’m happy to say that that has all changed. I could take any of these cakes out right now with my bare hands and face, no fork needed.
All the recipes are below each photo.
Found this site today that has loads and loads of flipping delicious looking recipes on it.They are even categorised, so if you are in the mood for say, dumplings or potatoes, vanilla flavoured things, Japanese, pasta or say, cheesecake doughnuts with salted caramel, then you’re all sorted. You just click into the different sections and off you go.
Speaking of cheesecake doughnuts with salted caramel, I will literally pay someone cash-money to make these sons-of-bitches for me and then bring them to my house – you will also be expected to feed them to me, a thank you.
Anyway, if you’re stumped for what to make for supper or more importantly dessert, check this site out, I seriously doubt you’re going to regret it.
I’m always trying out new cupcakes recipes, for vanilla and chocolate cupcakes specifically – I have made some really nice ones in the past and some that are so so. Yesterday we had the Durrants over for lunch, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to try out the recipe below, plus I woke up in the morning feeling like cupcakes – Are you surprised? No, neither am I. I also wanted to mention that I have added a new category to the left of my blog called My Recipes, which includes all the recipes I have tried out by myself that I have found online, in books and from friends.
The other day my very pregnant face and I really felt like cinnamon and sugar donuts, so I looked on my ‘baked goods’ board on Pinterest for an easy recipe that I remember glancing over a few weeks back, which I even bought a mini muffin tin for the last time I was at the shops. This recipe has very few ingredients and the end result is reached super quickly. I literally made these in a few minutes and then literally ate like 8 of them in a few seconds.
I actually feel like them again, now that I’m typing about them. Damn sweet teeth.
